THE STATIC CALCULATION OF STEEL TWIN BOX GIRDER BRIDGES WITH ORTHOTROPIC CARRIAGEWAY SLABS: RESULTS OF TESTS

STRAIN MEASUREMENTS MADE ON TWO WELDED BOX GIRDER BRIDGES WITH ORTHOTROPIC SLABS WERE COMPARED WITH THE RESULTS OF THEORETICAL CALCULATIONS. THE VALIDITY OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CALCULATIONS FOR THE DESIGN OF THE MAIN SUPPORTING STRUCTURE WAS DISCUSSED, TOGETHER WITH CALCULATIONS MADE FOR THE CARRIAGEWAY CONSTRUCTION. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE LATTER WERE NOT AS SATISFACTORY AS THE FORMER. /RRL/
